Benefits of an iPhone 5S/5C motorcycle mount
much everyone these days has a mobile phone, and
we like to keep them with us at all times. Yes,
even when nature calls we Brits can’t be
parted from our gadgets, and the first thing most
people do in a morning these days is not head
to the bathroom or greet loved ones, but get out
our phones and check for messages!
So it follows that bikers like to have their
phones to hand at all times too. Which is easier
said than done when you have to contend with helmets,
gloves, leathers and thermals.
Hands-free devices for cars are one thing, but
did you know you can get an iPhone 5S or 5C mount
for your motorbike too? Of course, it’s
not designed for you to make calls while riding,
that would be irresponsible and dangerous, but
it does allow you to set up a satnav app so you
don’t get lost, or play music through your
The Twisty Ride iPhone
motorcycle mount system is designed to fit
on most types of motorcycle and scooter and can
be used with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S models.
You can still see and use the touchscreen and
all the controls and cameras and it’s great
for all bikers, whether heading off on tour or
simply navigating the daily traffic jams.
The system includes an iPhone outer case, made
of tough, sturdy plastic to protect your gadget
from the elements – even the great British
summer. No need to worry about rain or high winds
blowing gravel at your phone – it’s
100% waterproof and guards against damage. All
the buttons and touchscreen can still be operated,
and you can plug in your headphones for some entertainment
on your ride. The camera holes match perfectly
so you can even video your ride! The internal
rubber surround is shock-proof to protect from
vibrations, and the charger still fits in too.
But perhaps the best thing about an iPhone motorcycle
mount is the fact that you can swivel your phone
360 degrees to set the screen at the perfect angle
when you’re riding. This means you can set
up your route on a maps app and will always be
able to see where your next turn is coming. No
more getting lost or stopping to find out that
you should have turned off five miles back!
The mount system can be securely mounted to the
handlebar or clutch or brake assembly –
whichever suits your bike and your preference.
And the quick release system means your phone
can be unhooked really quickly and easily when
you need to use it or when stopping for petrol.
The whole kit is made of durable materials and
comes with a one-year guarantee, so you can head
out on two wheels knowing that you phone can go
with you every mile.
If you’re forever stopping to check your
map, fed up of fiddling in your pocket to find
your phone when you stop, or simply want to take
advantage of the apps and music on your phone
for your next ride, a motorcycle phone mount system
is a very worthwhile investment.
